Silver Oaks Behavioral Hospital understands that people experience life’s challenges differently. Our staff is sensitive to the fact the many women experience severe traumatic episodes that interfere with leading a happy and fulfilling life.
The Women’s Trauma Track at Silver Oaks is designed to provide patients with an easy-to-use framework that can create change momentum. In addition to others, this program will help women address trauma related to:
Suicidal thoughts or behavior
Educating individuals about the impact of overwhelming life experience helps to get everyone “on the same page” with a shared and coherent organizing framework that does not stigmatize the injured person but instead allows a much closer and empathic understanding between patient and caregivers.
Increasing awareness, emphasizing safety, and teaching skills to manage feelings are crucial steps to take in creating an environment that can handle the crucial work of processing feelings, past trauma, grief and loss.
Women who complete treatment with Silver Oaks will learn how to:
Think differently about their problems;
Organize the changes they needed to make into more manageable bundles;
Help them develop pattern recognition for the ways in which their present problems relate to past experiences;
Help provide a roadmap for the process of recovery.
